Toyota is updating its most popular C-LUB trim with new sophisticated style touches to give customers the feeling of a “class-above”. This new version is an addition to the recently launched Toyota C-HR GR SPORT, which focuses more on a dynamic and sporty execution. The new C-LUB leads the upgrades being made for the 2022 model year.
The C-LUB is distinguished by an exclusive new bi-tone paint finish option, combining an Amethyst body with a contrasting silver or black for the roof, front pillars and rear spoiler*, and new-design 18-inch alloy wheels. In the cabin the seat upholstery is a new combination of fabric with supple synthetic leather and the trim details are in a cool gun metal tone.
Positioned at the heart of the range, between C-ENTER and the range-topping GR SPORT and C-HIC models, the new C-LUB is expected to command more than half of Toyota C-HR sales in Europe. Order books will open in December and the first cars are expected to be with customers in early 2022.
For 2022, the Toyota C-HR range gains Toyota Smart Connect, Toyota’s latest multimedia system, taking connectivity, functionality and ease of use to a higher level. Provided as standard on all versions excepting C-ENTER, the new platform has more powerful processing capacity (CPU) that operates faster than the current system. Operated via an eight-inch High Definition central touchscreen, it gives instant access to a series of smart connected services, including cloud-based navigation with continuous “always on” traffic information. This is delivered via the Toyota C-HR’s new data communications module (DCM), so no phone pairing is required for smart connected services and no additional data costs are incurred.
The driver can also make use of a new on-board voice agent that recognises natural, conversational requests to operate the multimedia and navigation. Software updates are made seamlessly, over the air and easy smartphone integration is provided via Apple CarPlay, with wireless connection, and (wired) Android Auto. Customers also have the option to upgrade to a more powerful package that comes with an embedded navigation system with detailed route features including 3D city mapping, highway signage and fixed speed camera locations.
A four-year Toyota Smart Connect package, including cloud navigation, local parking and road event information, over-the-air updates and the voice agent, is included in the vehicle’s purchase price.
